Misc episode of ''You Asked For It'' #7

Published 1951

Another misc episode of the popular 1950s American television series "You Asked for It". Episode includes: A fire-eater, a tour of Hollywood homes, Mr America showing his muscles, An elderly woman playing an unusual musical instrument, horseshoe throwing (I presume the studio lights caused problems), and Buddy Epsen dancing with his sister. Somes sources suggest this episode aired in 1951, possibly on the DuMont Television Network. Includes original commercials. Please forgive the annoying watermark on this copy.

How can that be? The 26th would have been on a Thursday. This show aired on Fridays in the beginning. Therefore, April 27th. Right?
